Founding Donors

We are immensely grateful to our Founding Donors for laying the foundation for this people-powered oral history archive. The minimum lifetime contribution to be considered a Founding Donor (Archival Level) is ₹25,00,000 (Indian Rupees).  Founding Donors are recognized for their foundational support into perpetuity.  The Archival Level will close on December 31, 2018 in the USA, March 31, 2019 in India and December 31, 2019 in the UK and Pakistan.
